Musicologist Dr. Jeffrey Langford and pianist Dr. Joanne Polk will present a lecture on the music and history of Clara and Robert Schumann. The Schumanns were married, and Clara was often the first pianist to premiere many of Robert's works. The lecture will examine the piano music of both husband and wife in an attempt to trace mutual influences from one to the other, and to evaluate the legacy of each. The lecture will involve extensive demonstrations of the music on a mid-nineteenth century Broadwood piano of the kind that the Schumann's might have used. This instrument is part of the collection of rare pianos in the Piano Performance Museum.
